Mind you, historically July weather has always been precarious at best (as is Dutch weather in general, no matter what month you pick).

You never quite know what you’re going to encounter — especially nowadays, what with global warming and other allegedly non-existent meteorological phenomena.

Weather Forecast

Updated July 13, 2018:

As a service to our visitors we update this page with current weather forecasts throughout the month of July.

There is an ongoing drought in the Netherlands. June 2018 was in the Top 10 of the driest months in the Netherlands since 1906, the year record keeping of precipitation percentages started. July is similarly shaping up like a record month.

We update this Amsterdam Weather in July information throughout the month.

Good news: July used to be the third wettest month of the year, but lately it has ranked somewhere in the middle.

If you do run into some rain it’s usually not enough to use an umbrella for.

Most showers are brief, and sometimes there’s little more than a drizzle.

Just pop into a store or a café to wait it out.

And if it looks like a day with the sort of weather you dislike, plan to visit a museum or two.

By the way, sunrise is before 6:00 am and sunset is somewhere around 9:30 pm.

When the weather is sunny, do like the Amsterdammers do and enjoy some relaxing time at one of the many outdoor cafés.

What to wear in Amsterdam in July

Count on warm weather. Even when it rains it never quite gets cold.

There is no need to carry around an umbrella. Should it rain, simply duck into one of the many cafés or coffee houses.
